Topics distribution
Topic correlation structures
Evolution trends
Abstract:Children's books involve a large number of topics. This poster focuses on that in China, which is the fastest growing market for children's book in the world. This poster chose, the biggest Chinese online bookstore, for data source to obtain children's bestsellers. The topic words of children's bestsellers were extracted from their brief introductions of the content on the website. With the aid of co-occurrence theory and tools of social network analysis and visualization, the distribution, correlation structures, and evolution patterns of topics were revealed and visualized. This poster shows that topics of Chinese children's bestsellers are broad and relatively concentrated, but their distribution is unbalanced. There are four distinguished topic communities (Living, Animal, World, and Child) in terms of centrality and maturity, and they all establish their individual systems and tend to be mature. The evolution of these communities tends to be stable with powerful continuity.
